in reply to Why do people say 'Perl' is dead?!?!

my main interesting is gaining a better understanding of systems I have to test and using the right tool to allow me to do my job better whether its using Perl, Python, Ruby etc..
The "right" tool here is mostly what is the best tool for you. Given the same problem, the right language to use may differ from person to person.

For me, the right tool is often Perl. For gazillions of others, Perl is seldomly a good tool to use.
